Last Chance for Lance

As reported in the Chicago Tribune, LB Lance Briggs has exactly two hours and 10 minutes from this writing to sign a long-term deal with the Bears.? If he doesn’t, and don’t count on anything happening, he will be bound to play for the franchise amount of $7.2 million for one year, and will not be able to sign a long-term contract until 2008.

Of course, Briggs has “committed” to sitting out the first 10 games of the season, losing over $400,000 per week, in protest.? See you in November, Lance, and that’s close to $5 million you’ll never see again.
